SUPERIOR, WI (KDAL) - The Superior Chief of Police Charles LaGesse has turned over the investigation into the use of excessive force by an officer to the Wisconsin Department of Justice Criminal Investigation Division.  

The incident occurred during an arrest being made by Officer George Gothner on January 5th.  A dashboard camera showed Gothner punching Natasha Lancour as she was being arrested for assaulting a peace officer.  

LaGesse says it is not clear how long the investigation will take and Gothner has been placed on administrative leave until the process is complete.
